Football Association of Zambia's boss Andrew Kamanga has issued a warning to the Chipolopolo after their 1-0 loss to Mozambique on Saturday.

Kamanga has threatened that the Football House will take corrective measures aimed at improving Chipolopolo’s dwindling performance.

Wedson Nyirenda's men succumbed to the Mambas in their 2019 CAF Africa Cup Qualifiers campaign at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.


According to the Lusaka Times website, a visibly upset Kamanga described the loss to the Mambas as unacceptable.

“It is a very bad result so we are not happy as FAZ. We didn’t expect this bad start to the campaign,” Kamanga said to Lusaka Times.

“We will take corrective measures. If necessary make some changes to the team.

“You can’t be dropping points at home if you are going to have the ambitions of going to the Africa Cup.”

The 2012 African champions failed to reach this year's tournament in Gabon and are now sitting at the bottom of Group K with zero points.

Their next match will be against Namibia in Windhoek next year, but will hope to redeem themselves against South Africa on Tuesday in an international friendly.
